Buckles Investment Services, an independent financial advisory company, is set to push its business south next year, creating graduate jobs in the process.
Currently following a strategy to acquire greater scope in the north-west, the firm has announced that one takeover in the south is planned for the first quarter of 2010, which will require graduate talent to help it succeed.
According to ifaonline.co.uk, Buckles will expand its graduate recruitment scheme, which has already gained the company 34 of its 48 members, in the next 12 months.
Nigel Spiers, chief executive, told the site that he prefers recruiting younger talent.
"We think people coming in to work for us after working for themselves for 20 years can present a few problems. We need to bring in new advisers and we think the graduate route is the only sure-fire way of achieving that," he said.
The Morgan McKinley employment monitor recently showed that October saw a 15 per cent rise in potential London graduate jobs in finance, compared to the previous month.
